Episode #15: Smart city platforms for an integrated management in smart sustainable cities
This webinar was part of ITU’s webinar series on Digital transformation for cities and communities.
Smart city platforms are a critical digital infrastructure that enables the implementation of digital solutions and smart city strategies. Smart city platforms provide cities with the necessary infrastructure to coordinate data management and facilitate interoperability between different verticals. They are crucial for solving the challenges posited by fragmented operations and moving towards an integrated approach to management with data as the main asset.
This webinar provided a comprehensive overview on the role of city platforms in facilitating smart city strategies. The webinar also provided the opportunity to present the latest U4SSC deliverables – “Digital solutions for integrated city management and use cases” and “Compendium of survey results on integrated digital solutions”. These deliverables demonstrated cities’ experiences in implementing smart city platforms and the transformation they have experienced as a result.
